  • Crazy Good Casserole

    I'm always looking for delicious, easy, IC-friendly recipes. Here's one I found today. Think I'll get the ingredients tomorrow morning so I can have it for Sunday dinner!

    Crazy Good Casserole
    Ingredients

    4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    6 strips of quality bacon – cooked and crumbled
    2 cans cream of chicken soup (no MSG)
    1/2 cup milk
    2 cups shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
    1 box (16 ounces) dried spiral pasta
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Directions
    1. Cook and crumble bacon. While bacon is cooking, cut chicken into bite-sized chunks. Set cooked bacon aside for later use. In the same pan, cook chicken in bacon drippings. Add garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.
    2. While chicken is cooking, prepare pasta according to directions. Spray a 9×13 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 400F.
    3. Drain pasta, return to pot. Add chicken, both cans of cream of chicken soup, ½ cup milk, 1 cup of Monterrey Jack cheese – stir to mix well. Pour into prepared baking dish.
    4. Top with crumbled bacon. Top with remaining cup of Monterrey Jack cheese. Bake at 400F for about 20 minutes, just until cheese is melted and beginning to brown on top.

    That sounds wonderful. I am copying it so I can fix it for dinner tomorrow too. I'll substitute a few slices of leek for the garlic --- I'm unusual in that more than a tiny bit of garlic is a trigger for me.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Hugs,

        Just sat down to eat the Crazy Good Casserole and it's really good. I used Hormel uncured bacon with no preservatives. I used maybe 1 1/2 tablespoons of garlic powder and in step 3, I added about 1 cup of frozen peas. The original recipe did not call for milk at all, but I had read several user comments that suggested to add 1/2 cup milk as it was too dry. Well, after baking, I think next time I will bump up the milk to 3/4 cup. I divided the whole thing into two smaller casserole dishes so I can put one of them in the freezer (uncooked) for another time. My husband had some and thought it was awesome!!

          It's what we had for dinner tonight and both husband and daughter liked it. I think we're all substitutors (is that a word?) --- I didn't have any cream of chicken so used cream of mushroom and I used just under 1/2 the soup can of milk. I just added milk until it looked right to me. Oh, yes, I used chicken tenders, but that's the same thing --- and I cut them in very thin pieces. I will be making it again.

            Daughter your faith has made you well,go in peace, and be healed of your disease.(Mark 5:34)

            Tried:
            Detrol:only took one pill and it made me sick
            Elmiron:caused horrible pain(took 1 week)
            CystaQ:caused alot of burning and pain(only took one pill)
            Wellbutrin:only on it for three days as it caused alot of bladder pain
            Elavil:Took one pill and it caused a flare that lasted almost two weeks. It was the longest flare I've ever had. Never again..ouch
            Prelief:made my bladder burn and feel tingly.

            Take:
            Uracyst:Started May 19 2011
            Enablex:take one pill daily with no issues
            Naproxen:for pain as needed
            Baking Soda with water:as needed and it's a God send. It brings down my pain within 20 mins.
            Venofer: Started April 2012 by IV for low Iron. I do not tolerate oral Iron so this is the route I had to take.Does not bother my bladder but did have other side effects. I take Benedryl with each treatment to avoid side effects.
            Supplements:Whey Protein powder daily
            Dessert Harvest Aloe It has been helping alot but I can only take it every two days as my "die off" reaction has been severe.

              Re: Crazy Good Casserole

              I am so making this tomorrow. Sounds delicious. I will use mozzarella cheese I think.

              Current Meds:
              1 Elmiron 100mg 3x a day
              1 Cimetidine 300mg 2x a day
              4 Gabapentin 300mg 3x a day (3600mg)
              1 - 2 Atarax 25mg at bedtime
              1 baclofen 10mg 3x a day as needed
              200mg of Pyridium 3x a day (usually do in cycles - on for a week or two as needed) - I am very careful about this.
              2 belladonna and opium suppositories as needed for pain daily.
              Bladder instillations (Lidocaine, Heparin, & Sodium Bicarbonate)

              I have tried but failed -
              lidocaine instillations, heparin instillations, oxybutynin by mouth also called ditropan, tylenol 3s with coedine, cyclobenzaphrine, Ativan, vesicare, Oxytrol patches worked for 3 to 4 years and then failed, I tried Uracyst and had some success but my urologist felt that it was not successful so we moved on to trying something else. .
